Labatt Holds Annual Meeting in Buffalo

By Eileen Buckley

Buffalo, NY – Some 500 key wholesalers and business leaders from across the U-S will be converging on Buffalo Wednesday and Thursday thanks to Labatt beer.

The company, now headquartered in Buffalo, will hold its 2008 meeting downtown.

Labatt USA has been headquartered at Buffalo's Key Center since last June. The company will play host to out of town guests at the Hyatt Regency for its annual meeting. Labatt will unveil its strategic plans for this year and report on last year's progress.

Labatt USA president Glen Walter says they are proud to show off Buffalo to their wholesalers.

And by this Spring anyone who drinks a Labatt will know the company is headquartered in Buffalo. Walter says although the beer is still brewed in Canada, all the bottle labels will say Buffalo, NY.
